Advertiser (Grand Falls) - - Editorial - Krys28@hot­

For the first time in its more than three decades of ex­is­tence, there is a woman chair­ing the Lions Win­ter Car­ni­val in Bishop’s Falls.

Lynette McDon­ald is chair of the 34th an­nual Bishop’s Falls Lions Club Win­ter Car­ni­val, which starts March 1 and runs un­til March 8.

“The first fe­male ever,” she said. “We have a busy slate. We have all kinds of events go­ing on from Thurs­day to Thurs­day for all ages ev­ery day of the week.”

The open­ing cer­e­mony is March 1 at Leo Burke Academy and in­cludes the lit­tle car­ni­val king and queen and Miss Win­ter Car­ni­val pageants.

There’s ev­ery­thing from a snow-sculp­ture con­test, fam­ily skat­ing, a craft fair, a spe­cial bingo, 15 prize card game, gospel sing-a-long, open mic night, adult mati­nee and dance, and chug-a-lug.

There a fam­ily day on Sun­day, March 4 with chil­dren’s games, mas­cots and a root beer chuga-lug.

The fol­low­ing evening there will be a fam­ily night with wiener roast, hot choco­late and fire­works.

There is also lots of food for sale through­out the week in­clud­ing a ham and beans sup­per, moose­burger and home fries, hot roast beef sup­per and fish­er­men’s brewis.

Other or­ga­ni­za­tions are host­ing events as fundrais­ers, said McDon­ald.

“It’s our main fundraiser that we have ev­ery year, and through these funds we give back to the com­mu­nity,” she said. “Any­thing that the Lions Club raises we give back to the peo­ple within our own com­mu­nity and sur­round­ing ar­eas. We serve. Not mat­ter what it’s for.”

One of the ma­jor events is the snow­mo­bile fun run slated for March 4.

“What­ever money is raised we give back to the Lions Max Simms Camp,” McDon­ald said. “We usu­ally give them about $5,000 ev­ery year, and the ma­jor­ity of that comes from this event.”

All are wel­come to take in the week-long fes­tiv­i­ties, the chair said.

“This is open up to Bishop’s Falls and sur­round­ing ar­eas, for all ages, fam­ily fun for every­one,” McDon­ald said.
